Reviews...

Deborah Greenblatt and David Seay continue to introduce folk music from around the world to young musicians. It’s a fun way to learn about the various tonalities and rhythmic patterns specific to these nationalistic tunes. This set of duets for two double basses is an adaptation from the original version for two violins. All of the publications in this series are available for viola and cello too, so the combinations are flexible. The colours and idiosyncrasies of Ukrainian traditional songs and dances feature toe- tapping syncopations and haunting tonalities especially the Ukrainian Dorian mode. Many of the duets are charming and lively but my favourites feature the melancholy minor modes. Chords are marked throughout so adding a guitar or piano line is easy. Combining a violin or viola on the top line with the lower bass line would also expand the musical possibilities. Greenblatt dedicated these duets to her Ukrainian grandfather, so this publication has a personal touch.
